Aerosmith: Meet The New Guy, Same As The Old Guy
The drama surrounding the future of Aerosmith came to a quick and tidy resolution yesterday when the band announced via its Web site that they’d found a replacement for frontman Steven Tyler. And the winner of the “Replace Steven Tyler” sweepstakes is – Steven Tyler.
Tyler and company can be seen joking around as they announce the tour in a video posted on AeroforceOne.com.
“We’re Aerosmith and the rumors are true – I think,” Joe Perry announces at the start of the clip.
“You think?” Tyler fires back. “I just auditioned and I got the gig.”
The band’s “Cocked, Locked, Ready to Rock Tour,” their first run of shows in Europe in three years, kicks off June 10 at The Sweden Rock Festival in Solvesborg.
Other lucky countries on the itinerary include The U.K., Romania, Greece, Holland, Belgium, Spain, France, The Czech Republic and Italy.
Or as Perry puts it, “Enough BS – we’re coming and everything is going to be set at eleven.”
Tickets for Sweden Rock go on sale March 5.
